Jonathan Toews said he is fully recovered from the concussion that sidelined him late last season.
Toews and defenseman Steve Montador each gave themselves clean bills of health while in town for NHL players meetings to prepare strategy for upcoming labor negotiations.
The current collective bargaining agreement expires Sept. 15.
"Taking the time off and not going to the world championship was really big because I didn't want to risk it any further," Toews told reporters. "I haven't felt or seen anything since so it's really good news."
Montador missed the entire postseason then saw a specialist after the playoffs.
"Met with some good people and got some treatment and a little bit of time does help too," Montador said. "Moving forward I feel there are no issues. I kind of feel like a whole new man. I'm as excited to get this season going as any other, just because I'm clear and healthier than I've been in years."
Toews is also looking forward toe the start of training camp.
"I feel great," Toews said. "Been training a lot to get back in shape. Been doing a little fishing, relaxing up north in Canada. Having a great summer so far."
